Saint Pauls offers comprehensive programming in Christian Education for children from preschool through high school, including 2 years of Confirmation during grades 8 and 9. Nine age-specific classes, each led by a minimum of two volunteer teachers, are held weekly from 9:30 AM to 10:30 AM from September - December and February - May. In January, all church school children ages 4 and up participate in the annual Bible Story Theatre workshops and production.

The stories of the Bible have long been the rich source of material for artists of all sorts:  painters, sculptors, musicians, dramatists, dancers, and filmmakers.  And that is how we approach the Bible at St. Pauls.  How does the story ignite your imagination?  How does it make you think?  How does it make you feel?   Using the SPARK curriculum, teachers in Primary through 6th grades use interactive games and arts activities to engage the children with the world of the Bible. Teachers in the upper grades continue this same kind of exploration.

St. Pauls strives for experiential learning in all class levels. Teachers incorporate music and drama, painting and puppetry into the church school programming. All teachers meet together twice a year to review calendar and curriculum, discuss special issues, and share ideas.
